Apple's recently released Music Memos is basically the Voice Memos app updated and geared toward songwriters, singers and the otherwise musically inclined. According to Apple's press release, the app was inspired by Voice Memos and the fact that "musicians and songwriters around the world have used [it] on their iPhones to quickly record ideas." Music Memos gives artists tools to record, analyze and share their ideas through a simple, streamlined interface typical of Apple products.
Apple today launched Music Memos -- a new iOS app that allows users to " tap into their musical potential and create incredible music no matter where they are.” The app is basically an easy way for musicians to record music using their device's built-in microphone whenever a musical idea hits them. Users can quickly record high-quality, uncompressed audio with a simple tap, and use the app to sync their songs to a virtual drummer and bass player to get an idea on how it sounds with a full band. The app also works with external microphones and musical instruments, such as an acoustic guitar and piano.
